8th Grade Promotion

Welcome to our promotion page!
Promotion is an event that celebrates the culmination of our 8th-grade students. It is our hope that the students understand how much we have cherished them as a part of our community and that they return to help us grow our next leaders. As they venture off to high school we send them off with a dance, brunch, & awesome promotion.
The 2018 dates for our activities are as follows:
Knott's Berry Farm Trip - TBD
Dance: Friday, June 8, 2018 (6-9pm)
Promotion: Thursday, June 6, 2018 @ 6pm
Powder Puff: Wednesday, June 13, 2018 @ 8am
Brunch: Wednesday, June 13, 2018 @ 9:30am
To the right is the promotion powerpoint that was presented at our first committee meeting and the promotion packet that was given at SLCs. If you are still interested in joining our committee, please come to our next meeting on Thursday, December 7, 2017 @ 6pm in room 1005.
